Rawalpindi[Pakistan], Feb. 21(ANI): Pakistan Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Tuesday visited troops along the Line of Control (LOC) at Mattewala, Munaawar sector and alleged that Indian ceasefire violations are an attempt to divert the world's attention from the Kashmir issue. Branding Kulbhushan Yadav as an example of India supporting terrorism, the COAS said, "Indian Ceasefire violations have a design. On one side it is an effort to divert world's attention from its atrocities against innocent Kashmiris, on the other; it is an attempt to dilute our response against terrorism and militancy. The targeting of civilians along the LOC is deliberate and highly reprehensible. We are fully aware of Indian design and her support to terrorism in Pakistan and the region. Indian spy Kulbhushan Yadav is one such evidence of these efforts and his case will be taken to the logical conclusion." At the occasion, the General Officer Commanding (GOC) also briefed the COAS about operational situation. He said the Pakistani soldiers are known for their professional competence, motivation and selfless devotion for defence of their motherland.(ANI)
